You may have noticed a new and small, computer at the Excelsior Springs Branch. It's our Early Literacy Station! Designed specifically for young children (ages 2-10 approximately) and paid for by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Mini-Grant, the Early Literacy Station allows children to build their language, math, and problem solving skills by playing interactive games.
We have a new addition to our storytime area! It is an educational computer for children ages 2-10 called an Early Literacy Station. There are lots of great programs for kids to learn from such as Dora's World Adventure, Krazy Art Room, and Tux Paint.

What you see above is the picture that was chosen as the winner of our End of the Year photo contest. In this picture, Venice Cherrito became one of the first kids to use of our Early Literacy Station when it arrived at our branch. This computer has a wide variety of interactive programs for children that will help them develop math, language, and problem solving skills while having fun at the same time. Since this picture was taken back in July, many other children have discovered how much fun it is to use this computer.
